Light on science, heavy on social justice

Tried a few episodes. One on disruption, another on feeding the world and scientists as workers.

Light on science, heavy on social justice and pretty much, data free. A lot of experts saying this is what I think with little backing. And frequently they drop into all the social justice issues that you can get on NPR but there, it's better produced and with greater depth. However, it is impressive how many times they can squeeze the term diverse in a 45 minute show. Try Brave New Planet, Science vs, Brain science, Freakonomics or The Naked Scientists.
